Cheap Air Jordan 1 Authentic . -- The Chicago Bears agreed Tuesday to a one-year contract with defensive lineman Israel Idonije and are bringing him back for a second stint.Barcelona delivered a hammer blow in the La Liga title race with a 4-0 thrashing of hosts Real Madrid in El Clasico on Saturday. A Luis Suarez double and further goals from Neymar and Andres Iniesta completed the rout to put Barcelona six points clear at the top of La Liga. Real Madrid 0-4 Barcelona - report Read our match report from the Bernabeu Here, we pick out five talking points from the match...  Who needs Messi when you have Neymar and Suarez? Suarez has been a key figure for Barcelona in Messis absence Much of the build up to El Clasico centred on whether Lionel Messi would be fit enough to go head-to-head with his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo. In the end, the Barcelona ace started on the bench. But Barcelonas brilliance is built on more than just one man. They have won seven of the nine games he has missed through injury and attacking duo Luis Suarez and Neymar stepped up and delivered once again.The pair scored 18 goals during Messis absence and, with him watching from the dugout, added three more to their tally against Real Madrid. Henrys Clasico verdict Real Madrid failed to produce the right level of commitment or desire, says Thierry Henry Since signing from Liverpool, Suarez has thrived in the heat of El Clasico battles, scoring three goals and registering one assist in his three match-ups with Real Madrid. His opener after 11 minutes concluded a brilliant 24-pass team move. No goal has been scored in La Liga this season after more passes.Of course, Messi will play a crucial part if Barcelona are to win trophies this season. But they have shown over a number of weeks - and against their biggest rivals - that they have a team packed with top quality players who are also able to make the difference.Pressure builds on Benitez Real Madrid boss Rafael Benitez is under pressure The white hankies were being waved and boos were ringing around the Bernabeu at full-time. He may have only been in charge for 12 games but Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez is most definitely under pressure.Real only suffered their first defeat in all competitions last time out against Sevilla. But their style of play under Benitez has come in for criticism and a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of their biggest rivals will amplify the concerns of his critics.However, Sky Sports Thierry Henry believes it would be unfair to solely blame Benitez for the defeat. It was a collective thing, he said. At the end of the day hes going to maybe take the blame. They ultimately failed as a team today. They didnt play well.Real fail to match Barcas desireReals performance was the particular focus for Henry at both half-time and full-time. The former Barcelona striker was critical of the hosts application and commitment to stopping Barcelona.This type of game is not about the tactics, he said. At one point you need to bring the desire and the right commitment on the field and the right intensity.dddddddddddd It wasnt there at all. You cant play a Clasico like that. You saw a team on one side. On the other side you saw a group of players playing for themselves and not being a team at the moment. Thierry Henry People are going to talk about Benitez and the tactics. The tactics come along when both teams desire and commitment is there and the game is tight. Then the boss will have to trigger one, two or three things to see who is going to be the best boss. But if your team goes out there without the right desire or commitment it becomes really difficult for the coach.Im not trying to find any excuses for Benitez but first and foremost you need to bring the desire on the field. You saw a team today on one side. On the other side you saw a group of players playing for themselves and not being a team at the moment.Reals main men fail to fire Cristiano Ronaldo was unable to make an impact against Barca Cristiano Ronaldo could easily have made his way onto the scoresheet had it not been for two brilliant stops from Claudio Bravo. However, the Real Madrid ace was unable to influence proceedings as he would have liked. He only managed two shots at goal in the entire game and produced just one pass leading to a shooting opportunity.But, just as Messi isnt Barcelonas only attacking threat, Ronaldo was severely lacking in support from Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez. The trio only managed to work Bravo four times between them.The performance of the latter three players raises questions about whether they were physically ready for the intensity of a Clasico, given they have all been sidelined with injury recently.Since the start of October Real Madrid have played seven games. Of the 1890 minutes the trio could have racked up, theyve managed just 309. Gareth Bale is the only one to have played a full 90 minutes in that time. He did it just once, in Reals 3-2 defeat to Sevilla before the international break. In short, most of Reals key attackers were undercooked. Barca favourites for the title Neymar celebrates with Barca team-mate Andres Iniesta Barcelonas victory moves them six points clear of Real at the top of La Liga. It feels like a pivotal moment in the title race. Had Real won on Saturday they could have hit the summit. Instead they seem a long way off, with star names struggling and an under-fire manager.While Henry feels the result is not absolutely decisive in the title race he does believe the impact of the result will be significant for both teams.The perception of La Liga sometimes in other countries is its only Barcelona and Real Madrid, he said. I can assure you its not.Barca lost and lost well against Celta Vigo away from home and they lost to Sevilla. They know going away from home and sometimes at home, games are difficult. Its not a title decider but it will play a lot on the mind of Madrid and give Barcelona great momentum.
